How many others listed here have definitely applied (openly said they've applied, not rumoured)?
The list must be due for publication from the FA soon. Little point running a regular update of those that have applied compared to other teams in the same league as we know from last year the rules can be flexed.
I ask the club’s and they tell me they’ve applied or not. The latest clubs posted aren’t rumours. Not sure when the list will be released. I know Laurence Jones is back to work after being off ill for a while & Matt Edkins is just about to go on paternity leave(or currently is on leave). Not sure how this’ll effect the timing of the list being released. But there is an FA League’s meeting in early February and those 2 are going to show a provisional constitution. I guess the list will have been released before then.

Is this all common knowledge and do they know it is being posted on an open forum? Not sure how this sits with me. Maybe I'm the only one.

It’s on their automatic email responses.

From talking to a friend of mine who resides in Durham but is involved with a Northumberland club He has been told that AFC Killingworth have moved back to Killingworth so wont be applying this year. Neither will Alnwick Town . Newcastle Blue Star and Blyth Town are both confident they will be promoted so maybe they have had the heads up from somewhere or someone, both are saying top 5 and they will be accepted

Is that the final official list? I think last year the list was released on the FA website in mid January.

I’d like to see if the FALC sticks to the rules about a top 5 position. The SWPL will need all 4 applicants to be promoted.

South Liverpool aren’t on the list and there’s been several reports and interviews that they are definitely applying. Including from the club themselves. I remember last years list had one or two missing applicants that were added later on.

Just been told that they posted their application and it hasn’t been processed. They will be added.

Fairly surprised that Exwick haven't applied but Teignmouth have (surely no chance of lights at their existing ground)?

It will mean a cracking end to the season in the Leicestershire Senior, with all 4 being in the top 5. Sileby's manager seems to think they applied as well.

I make it 84 teams applying, involving 36 Leagues, plus FC IoM & the Bury Phoenix club.

Remind me please - how many places will be required if there were no Step6 relegations.

Also, maybe, which of the above-mentioned Leagues have little/no chance of having a member promoted?

Maximum of 40 clubs promoted. So a top 5 finish might not guarantee promotion. https://www.nwcfl.com/news-articles.php?id=7851

Locally 5 clubs have applied:

From @DFLeague2019
Braunton, Newtown & Teignmouth
From @StPiranLeague
Hayle & Penryn Athletic

Promotion is subject to ground grading & finishing positions."

Berko are groundsharing at Kings Langley this season so no issue with ground grading.
Codicote were relegated from step 6 last season and have mobile floodlights so should be OK. This will be a straight shoot out between who finishes higher, if only 1 to be promoted rule is followed.
Berko 1 point ahead with 2 games in hand.

Some interesting applicants in this list, including several which really seem out of left field compared to speculation on here.

I have several questions about this list, actually:

Where do the following play: Faversham Strike Force, Forest Row, Montpellier Villa, Berks County, Hilltop, Infinity, Wrens Nest?
As an extension of this, which teams are applying with their own grounds and which are applying with groundshares?
Harleston Town were demoted from Step 6 last season for not meeting the ground grading. Have they been able to carry out the necessary works since, or at least get planning permission sorted to do so? Have AEK Boco been able to do anything more to get their ground ready after their failed application a few seasons back?
Do Gornal Colts play at the Gornal Athletic ground, and what is their relationship with Athletic?
Besides South Liverpool, Penryn Athletic and potentially Sileby Town, are there any other known applicants who aren't on the current list for whatever reason?
